Help on 1st XV Match Days

Firstly thanks to Kim Rutter who answered our last call for help in running club finances.

We are now looking for a couple of volunteers to help on 1st XV home match days (15 Saturdays a year).  While not urgently required until the start of next season it would be beneficial to find people now so that can get acquainted with the role during one of out remaining April home fixtures.

Roles are:

Front of House

Maisie Jenyon will be heading to college next season after a number of years helping us with front of house duties at home match lunches.  We are now looking for a replacement to help to meet and great diners, to sell raffle tickets, collect guess the score entries and generally offer a warm welcome to visitors.

Match Day Manager

Alan Croft will be taking a break from his match day manager role.  In conjuction with John Pritchard duties include being at reception to help with enquiries, handling gate stewards, parkers, stand tickets and handling gate money etc..  Additionally some help setting up and dismantling the lunch tables is helpful.  Alan or John can provide full training and guidance.

Please contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it  if you are able to pick up one of these important roles. 


Finally the club would like to take this opportunity to thank Maisie and Alan for their great assistance for the last few seasons.

Cambridge Rugby Club May Ball 2016

CRUFC May Ball Poster 2016

The waiting is over and the champagne is on ice. Make a date in your diaries as Cambridge Rugby Club is pleased to announce that it will be re-introducing its annual May Ball in 2016.

The aim is to provide a fun filled evening that hopefully will be a celebration of a successful season for all members of the club from mini and youth parents right through to the senior players and supporters.

A black tie and ball-gown event, it will be held on Friday 27th May 2016 at Volac Park. Set in a marquee positioned on the 1st XV pitch there will be a sit down three course meal and a program of evening entertainment, including a live band and disco, champagne and gin bars plus much more.

Tables of 10 will be available at £650 or individual tickets at £65 each. £1 from every ticket will go towards the Arthur Rank Charity Hospice, plus we will be holding raffles and auctions to raise further funds for the charity on the night.

The event will be looking to attract sponsors for various elements of the evening and corporate packages will be made available soon.

To give us an idea of numbers (and to make sure you don't miss out) please register your interest here.

Annual General Meeting


The AGM was held on 14th Dec, with 37 members in attendance. Here’s a brief review of the highlights.

Director of Rugby

Rowland Winter reported on community activities, where over 3,000 hours of coaching has been delivered to 35 schools and colleges. Partnerships have been enhanced with various local and national organisations.

On the playing side Mini & Youth is thriving with ever growing numbers, coaching improved pathways are being created. The 2nd XV now have a structured league to play in and feature more home grown talent than ever before. The Exiles have been renamed the 3rd team, now with a dedicated coach (Darren Messenger) and increasing numbers. As previously advertised Stef Liebenberg is now engaged as head coach of the Colts.

The 1st XV are obviously doing well having turned a corner this time last year, completing last season with 12 wins from the last 17 and currently 12 wins and 1 draw out of 14 this season.


Malcolm Watson reported on the changing room project. A good start has been made on raising the funding required (~£700K for phase 1) although we have a long way to go and will be asking the membership for help soon. The plan is to break ground immediately after the end of the 2016/17 season, and aim to be operational start of the 2017/18 season.

Malcolm also reported on the current status with kit/club shop suppliers, catering and bar arrangements.


Jimmy Dore presented the accounts for the 2014-15 season, which were approved by the AGM, along with approval to reappoint Price Bailey as auditors.

Highlights of the accounts are that turnover and gross profit both increased and operating surplus increased. This enabled us to service our various debt commitments. While well under control we still have a large amount of debt and hence a long term debt repayment plan. The biggest issue, given the seasonal nature of our income is cash-flow, particularly during the off season.


Alan Banks is standing down after several years of great service as president. Steve Bowller was elected as his replacement effective from the end of this season. Steve took time to thank Alan for his presidency, particularly holding the club together during our financial troubles a few seasons ago.

Adrian Carpenter and Jimmy Dore were re-elected as club secretary and treasurer respectively.


Before committee elections took place Malcolm thanked the many volunteers who help run numerous different aspects of the club. He invited anyone who has some time to spare to offer their services. This doesn’t necessarily mean joining the committee.

Malcolm particularly commended Rob Dean for his work in gaining sponsorships (a significant proportion of the club’s revenue), in addition to managing match day lunches.

Malcolm also thanked JJ Jeffrey, our departed chairman and Jeremy Cook and Paul Barker, both of whom have now left the committee.

Malcolm Watson, Rob Dean, Gordon Newbound, Adrian Fraser and Ross Jenyon we re-elected back onto the committee. There are several openings now on the committee, most notable for a chair of Mini & Youth.


There were no other AOB topics, other than to enjoy a beer amongst friends before departing.
